2015 British GP Post-Race Stats

What a race that was! Easily the best race so far this season, the podium ended up with the same three drivers as most races this season but still a spectacular race.

Mercedes as usual locked out the front row of the grid, with Hamilton on pole, but both Williams made an incredible start to lead 1-2 for a few corners before Hamilton got back ahead of Bottas for second place. Silverstone had six retirements and one DNS in total, Nasr failed to even make the grid, Button, Maldonado and Grosjean were all out at turn one, Verstappen retired just a few laps in and then Ricciardo and Sainz mid-way into the race.

The race ended up with the podium of Hamilton, Rosberg and Vettel, three men that have shared the podium in six of the nine races this season and three times with that exact order. Lewis Hamilton got the fastest lap of the race, three tenths quicker than Nico Rosberg.


Despite only finishing fifth when he could have been on the podium, Valtteri Bottas is the only driver to gain a championship position, ahead of Kimi Raikkonen by a single point.


Hamilton extends his lead again but the battle for 4th-6th is very competitive, just three points between Valtteri Bottas in fourth and Felipe Massa in sixth. Fernando Alonso scored his first point of the season but still hasn’t gained any positions.
